Music is a powerful force that has been bringing people together since for centuries. Heck, it’s been bringing people together since the beginning of time. This fact is more true than ever; every year, billions of people come together to celebrate music at festivals happening around the world. Even if you don’t consider yourself musically-inclined, you’ve probably heard a thing or two about Coachella, Lollpolooza, and Bonnaroo.  These festivals aren’t for everyone, especially if huge crowds of people aren’t your thing. Hundreds of thousands of people attend these fests, and things are known to get rowdy. Crowdedness isn’t the only…

There are few better days in life than a Saturday afternoon watching your favorite football team battle it out with their opponents. This was something which I missed greatly when I was living in the USA but for the last year my business partner Bharat Bhise and I have been living in London and I have been able to take him to plenty of Tottenham games.

Our stall really was the best food stall at the…

My buddy Bogoljub Karic and I are massive Spurs fans and we are just about getting over losing the Champions League final last month. To help us feel better we have decided to begin to look ahead to the coming season, a season where we fully believe that spurs will mount a title challenge. Mauricio Pochettino is not just there to make up the numbers and he will want this team to close the gap on Liverpool and Man City. Despite losing out by 28 points last season, Spurs were actually just 5 points behind the leaders in January, before…

Prior to moving up to Alberta, Canada my family and I lived in many locations across the USA and one thing which never had in any of those homes was a nice garden. This had gone on for so long that in fact I never considered investing cash in renovating the garden area. Here in Alberta, at least where we live, the gardens are immaculate, they look great and I’d be a fraud if I didn’t tell you that I was very envious. I had already gone to a financial lender to secure some funds for a home renovation and…
